Just take your time with the prep, the better the prep the better it will come out probably.

Painted mine black about a month ago. The clear coat was peeling so I figured I would just go black. I just used 100 grit then 220 grit sandpaper. Washed them with warm soapy water and sprayed 3 coats of the duplicolor wheel paint, then 2 coats of clear. It has held up good so far and has been hit with my pressure washer a few times without any problems
